Tesla Model S: Auto Journalists Loving It (VIDEOS)

July 2nd, 2012 by  

Tesla Model S deliveries started to initial customers on Friday. Auto journalists also got their first deliveries on Friday, and apparently they are loving it.

Michael Graham Richard of TreeHugger writes: “So far there seems to be an almost universal consensus that the Model S is a very impressive car, not just when compared against other electric cars, but against all cars.” It certainly seems that way.

Going on: “It seems to please when it comes to look, acceleration, ride quality, attention to details in the cabin, spaciousness, how it sticks to the road because of the very low center of gravity (thanks to the batteries), etc. It’s basically a standing ovation from the press so far, which is rare.”

See the videos below and a roundup of posts from Michael for more on all of that.
